Re: Airbag Collar

"All that is needed is an airbag collar similar to the neck protection devices used by F1 drivers"

F1 drivers don't spend a lot of their time looking up / left / right / down left / down right / behind. Kinda useful in an air combat situation.

While the fighter pilots silk scarf may be a bit of a fashion statement, it does prevent sores developing around the neck from constant rubbing against the flight suit.
